Two Goals No Waiting

Two Ranger prospects and two more goals for the offensive explosion that is marking this season's prospect coverage. To see that the Rangers have this kind of firepower waiting in the wings to join the pipeline only makes the Ranger future that much more exciting to look forward to.

Take tonight as two key prospects from the 2006 draft class were in action and both are already in double figures for goals scored on the season.

2006 3rd rounder Ryan Hillier had the bigger goal as his 14th of the season tied the game at 5 as his Halifax Mooseheads came back from down 5-3 and went on to win in overtime 6-5.

Hillier's goal came at 11:24 of the 3rd as he scored off a feed from teammate Bryce Swan. Hillier is the current goal scoring leader among the prospects and is now 14-10-24 in 20 games.

Then we have the first rounder of the same draft class Bobby Sanguinetti who scored his 10th of the season along with adding his 16th assist of the season as his Brampton Battalion earned an easy 7-2 win over Sanguinetti's former team the Owen Sound Attack.

Sanguinetti also earned the game's "Third Star" for his efforts as the leading point scorer among Ranger prospects is now 10-16-26 which moved Sanguinetti back into first place among OHL defensemen.

If you took the goal totals of Sanguinetti (10), Hillier (14), and Saginaw's Tomas Zaborsky (8), added them up (32) then compared them to the total of the entire Ranger roster (27) then you might see why one gets excited about the Ranger future.

Here we go again

It is time for the weekend and once again Ranger prospects will keep Prospect Park very busy. While no one game stands out as a "must watch", there are a couple to key an eye on like 2nd Ranked Michigan hosting Alaska and Bobby Sanguinetti facing the 4th Staal brother who's name Sam Rosen could not remember but we do (Jared).

As always Prospect Park will have all the scores, news and everything else for you.
